I don't know I have managed to get to 28 without ever reading Jane Eyre, but I have decided that I must read after watching the 2011 film with Michael Fassbender. I was honestly gripped and could not believe that I had never watched or read it before. My mum claims I have watched the 1983 version starring Timothy Dalton as a child, but I don't remember.
So many of my friends and family have since told me it is their favourite book. I have therefore downloaded to my iPad Mini and will be starting straight away. I am really looking forward to reading as love classic romantic stories.
You can download the book for free on amazon.co.uk or buy the adaption I watched here.
